We would like feedback from users of the classified section on how long a classified should run before we auto remove it from the classifieds?

Just my own personal experiencing selling items, I would suggest auto-remove after 60 days. Most of my items have sold within a week. In one instance, it sold several hours after my initial listing.

My vote would be a week. If it hasn't sold by then, it probably won't sell.

When Admin has the final results, will this actually become the rule?

I think 90 days is long enough. It may help cover some of the time when the seasonal residents are here or may be short enough to miss them if that's the object of the ad. Just a thought.

Classified ads should be posted for 30 days then removed. That same item could then be re-posted for another 30 days if not already sold. The 30 day removal should trigger a message to the people who are doing the posting that their item has been removed, and include instructions on how to re-enter the item if desired.
